Villistas Group's story

Villistas is a united group of 8 hardworking people. They are friends and they help each other to get ahead with their loan. Nora is a good woman who has always fought for the wellbeing of her children. She is 51 years old and married. She has 5 children. Nora earns a living selling corn, tamales and other food. She decided to start her business because at one time she had a very sick child and she set out to help him improve. She has already been working for 6 years and the loan will help her to buy some steamers as the ones she has are old and burned. She will also buy more corn, charcoal, corn husks and dough to make tamales and other things. A dream Nora would like to fulfill is to have her own restaurant and have a lot of customers. This group is special and its members are outstanding people who think about the wellbeing of their families. They desire to be the best group and to never give up.

In this group: Alicia, Claudia Elizabeth, Esther*, Flor Carina, Judith Guadalupe, Ma Juana, Maria De La Luz, Nora Elia
